"Do NOT labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting LIFE..." - The Gospel of John 6:27 (NKJV)
A systematic and daily reading of the Word of God is important in maintaining a strong Christian life. Establish a daily quiet time with God and His Word. Pray that the Holy Spirit will help you understand what you read. By following our daily Bible reading schedule through this blog, you will be able to read the Bible through in a year. Please note that you may utilize the ‘BIBLE READER’ app that is installed at the bottom of this webpage to assist you in reading the specified scripture portion for today.

To get the MOST from God's Word, please do the following intentionally:
1. REQUEST God to connect with you as you read the word of God with FOCUS and OPENNESS to see what God wants to speak with you.
2. READ the selected sections of Scripture slowly as you mark the words and phrases that intrigue you, even reading them the second time to get a better understanding.
3. REFLECT on what God is communicating to you; stopping long enough to let the seed of God's Word take root in your heart.
4. RESPOND to the passage speaking directly to God about what is in your heart, and then look out for ways to live out what you find - individually, and to others within your church and elsewhere.

As you read and meditate, ask yourself the following three questions:
a) What is God speaking to me through this passage?
b) Is there a command, a promise or a warning for me?
c) Is there an example for me to follow?

Please POST your comments below if there is a thought or message that the Lord has spoken to you through the passage that you are reading and meditating today. Please make sure that your post is aligned to the scripture passage mentioned at the header. All comments should pertain to the relevant scripture portions only, and should be aimed to glorify God (the true author of 'The Bible') & edify everyone who visits this blog site daily - both young and old. May God bless you abundantly for encouraging others through your comments!

Let's PRAY...
LORD, give me the desire to take a little time out of my busy schedule today as I read and meditate on Your Word. Give me this day MY DAILY BREAD. Speak to me clearly & lead me today as my Good Shepherd. Help me to be a blessing to others who interact with me as I attempt to be a living witness of Your Word today. In Your Name I pray, AMEN.

February 26 Bible Reading: Deuteronomy Chapters 16-18

Jesus Christ is the GREAT Prophet like Moses: In our readings today from Deut 18, we see that Moses prophesies that God will raise up a great Prophet like him in the future. "The Lord your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your midst, from your brethren. Him you shall hear… And the Lord said to me: 'What they have spoken is good. I will raise up for them a Prophet like you from among their brethren, and will put My words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him. And it shall be that whoever will not hear My words, which He speaks in My name, I will require it of him" (Deut 18:15, 17-19).

This prediction was literally fulfilled fifteen hundred years later in our Lord Jesus Christ who was referred to by Apostle Peter (Acts 3:22, 23) and by Stephen, the first Christian martyr (Acts 7:37). Jesus Christ is The Prophet, great above all other prophets; by whom God would make known Himself and His will to the children of men, more fully and clearly than He had ever done before. Jesus Christ is the Light of the world (John 8:12), and He would reveal the hidden mysteries of God. He is The Word by whom God speaks to us (John 1:1; Heb 1:2). He should be like unto Moses, only above him. Whoever refuses to listen to Jesus Christ today, shall find out one day that this Prophet will be his/her Judge in the future (John 12:48).

Let us pay careful attention to all that our Lord Jesus Christ has told us to do which are clearly written in the four gospels. Let us always remember that Jesus Christ is truly the GREAT Prophet like Moses whose words we need to hear and obey!
